With a nickname like monkey eyes shorty, Yoshida doesn't have any good points appearance wise.

On one fateful day, his school life changes completely when the most popular guy, Satou, confesses his love to him!

But there are rumors aplenty that Satou already has a lover in the school, so is he just making fun of Yoshida?!

Really really cute.

Really, I could read this one over and over and over again. It's hilarious, and the characters are amazing. The story is a fantastic read with a mix of light and heavy moments. And parts like Satou's back story which could have turned into melodramatic messes are handled with care.

While Yoshida and Satou do follow up to a certain extent the old stereotypical BL couple with the seme being amazing at everything and with the uke being completely weak, I think their personalities makes them stand out amidst other BL crap. I completely love how Yoshida isn't the usual whiny uke who can't deal with his very dominant seme, and Satou has a very dominant personality. Yoshida is adorable as other reviewers have stated, and while some may have trouble with Satou's sadism, I think that it's fairly toned down compared to other sadists in yaoi. I don't think Satou would ever hurt Yoshida in a horrible way or humiliate him. There's very little angst, as Yoshida accepts that he is in a relationship and doesn't sit around, cry, and push back Satou's advances like many of the irritating ukes in BL do. You can tell they're very much in love with each other. It's a heart-warming relationship to me.

The story itself is episodic, but within each episode you get character development and some lovely Yoshida x Satou (keep in mind this is shounen-ai so don't expect anything too explicit). Tanaka Suzuki is one of the few BL authors I've read who is amazing at comedy and is pretty good at drama. AnD is a very funny read, and can be touching at times.

Overall, one of the best shounen-ai I've read, with great characters, lovely relationships, and a very funny story. While I had read some shounen-ai before like Seven Days, this one was really the one that got me onto the BL boat. Also, see if you can listen to the drama cd's - they're really well done.

At last a different and unique Shounen-ai. Sure, it's in no way perfect and at times really cliche. But finally there's a Shounen-ai manga that doesn't have a beautiful uke. Seriously, for most of these types of stories the uke is so pretty that he looks like a girl!!!! That just completely ruins the purpose of "boy's" love now doesn't it?

Yoshida is one of the cutest uke of the world.

Waaaowaaaah O.O I totally love this manga... It completly break normal yaoi rules! And i love it! totally funny and original >w< And Satou is a sadist, it's crazy xD

And also, Yoshida is very mature compared to other uke. it is not the type to get sick with envy when Satou is not concerned with him. it's really refreshing.
Especially since there is quite the seme is immature.
it's just like a shojo, but with boys!

I'm glad the BexBoy magazine is published in France.because I'm going to buy the volumes and encourage the author! YEAAAAAY! >w<

Reading it for Yoshida

Satou is just... intolerable. Sure, a sadist's joy must be to tease their love interest, but this is just unaccaptable! You gotta be gentle at times as well and respect your lover. If not, then it isn't a relationship anymore. Satou is plain selfish, and I don't think he should continue misbehaving simply because Yoshida accepts him the way he is.
True, Yoshida's reactions are adorable! But of you love a person, you gotta sacrifice some of your sick enjoyment for the sake of making them happy. I just wonder why everybody else in this manga is just horrible to Yoshida! He deserved all the happiness in this world.

I loved how Yoshida at one point questions why the hell he is dating Satou who is too selfish, a liar and is just too unlikable. This is something that had been on my mind as well.

It isn't as if Satou actually defends Yoshida either! He only acts possessive even when the rival treats Yoshida better, and then forgets that Yoshida gets mistreated by his fans sad. Moreover, he is rude to Yoshida's friends!

Regardless of all, I still love it and I enjoy the story. I don't normally mind this type of dynamic, but the characters aren't some flat 1-D ones that I couldn't help but get extremely attached to cutie Yoshida. In fact I only read it for him, and for the moments where Satou faces hardships or getd pwnd. He is just such a loser....

Kawaiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii ne~~~~~~!!!!! (-* v *-)
Yoshida is definitely one of the cutest uke from all boy love manga. Haha, he's "My Most Favorite" too ( >___<~ ) <3 lol
The story is very cute, totally different from other manga since the protagonist(uke) is not good-looking, a not pretty one. But his personality counts all.
However, Yoshida is very pitiful since he's quite not good-looking but lives in a society that look matters a lot. I mean, i personally sympathize with him since i'm also Asian and I know that many Asian countries' society values good-looking people.

However, as i read through it, i find Yoshida wasn't that bad-looking. He's actually cute, especially with teary face *evil grin*
I find the seme sometimes too sadistic and too self-centered tho..

Oh well, but they are just very suitable for each other too since Yoshida is very mature and can accepts Satou's bully actions <3<
A very cute and refreshing manga. Totally recommended!!! smile ))

well, i don't think yoshida is ugly, but i can see how he might be bullied in a culture in which standing out makes one weird. normally i don't much care for stories where the seme bullies the uke and yet the uke falls in love anyway, nor do i care for those where the uke is unbelievably dense, and where he struggles against any intimacy -- but this one is different somehow. not much different, mind, but sufficiently so to make it stand out positively in a field that's filled with cliche and stupid storylines. for one, yoshida is really adorable; he might be dense but his heart is definitely in the right place. mostly i think it's got to be in the art -- some of the images of satou when he looks at yoshida are really touching. and in volume 4 we finally get a little meat with satou's backstory, and some honest thoughts from him (about how he feels empty), so i am hopeful that future chapters might rise even higher over the mediocrity of standard BL. not rating it yet since it's not complete.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
When Yamanaka is touching Yoshida's face, and says, "Oh, it was an eyelash.", and Yoshida says, "I don't have eyelashes."
I seriously just started cracking up. It's very cute and funny! Read it!

Aitsu no Daihomei... This manga is so fun, though the word 'fun' doesn't seem enough. It's hilarious and entertaining and refreshing. This is what comedy really is.

As for the art, it's detailed, clean, and clear. You can figure every character's emotion out easily. I also like the fact that this isn't some kind of manga where girls aren't allowed or doesn't even exist. For me, BL with an adequate existences of women adds the spices of the plot. Good thing Tanaka - sensei doesn't seem to have a problem having them in a story, unlike some mangaka.

The plot and the characters, though, seemed to be clichéd for 'the ugly, unpopular guy, beautiful, handsome prince and batallion of cheeky fangirls', have been developed into something sensible and interesting one. It doesn't actually revolves on the relationship of the two, but also on how they deal with the things bothering inside them - the constant bullying, the way people look at them, be it as 'monkey-looking' or the 'popular' one, and understanding their own feelings towards the other. What's so disturbing for me is that the discrimation about Yoshida and his other 'ugly' friends. It's too much that I ended up somewhat irritated for Yoshida since he doesn't do anything, although he can't actually anything about his face. But he's so manly and gentleman at some point, that I can't help it but pity him. That must be horrible, so I thought. The sadistic part of Satou as well, it's too much but somehow, it can made Yoshido more likeable. And it's also understandable because of what he has been through. But Yoshida is still the stronger one and that's his good points. But for all those mean girls, I wanna beat them to pulp. But since it's still ongoing I want Yoshida saying 'I may be ugly but I'm not ashamed of myself!' or something like that.

But it is still a long way to go. biggrin
